This past weekend was the 5th Annual Bockfest 5K, and was part of the 25th (!!) annual Bockfest weekend. It was the 4th time I ran the Bockfest 5K. I only missed the race in 2014.
So I ran 11 miles with the Spot-ON training group (my friend Rebekah sent me the info, allowing me to join up with the group) and then two miles casually on my own before lining up at the starting line.
Mile 1: 7:40
Mile 2: 7:14
Mile 3: 7:20
Last 0.1: 54s
23:08 total time for the 5K, which was tough, but I did not feel completely blown up, which I was definitely happy with. I know that my legs have more speed in them than that, and I am hopeful that I can actually RACE a 5K in 2017. Maybe Thanksgiving?
I finished up my long run with a 2 mile cool down.
